Cerro “Aguilera” Attempt. A Chilean-British expedition jointly led by F. Medina and M. Hickman and comprising nine other climbers and scientists entered the Patagonian Icecap through the Fiordo Andrew and marched toward Cerro “Aguilera” (unofficial name, 2400 meters, 7874 feet). Attempts could get no higher than 4000 feet, but in the course of this expedition it was verified that the mountain was a volcano (November 1985 through January 1986).
